Application for Sunoikisis Faculty Seminars
Classical Traditions in Science Fiction
Dates: June 5-6, 2017
Consultants: Brett Rogers (University of Puget Sound), Ben Stevens (Trinity University), and Jesse Weiner (Hamilton College)
Dates: June 7-13, 2017
Consultant: Mark Schiefsky (Harvard University)
The application deadline is Friday, April 21, 2017.
Participation in each seminar will be limited. The seminar will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, according to the following priorities.
- Those who will be offering the course for undergraduates at their institutions in the fall of 2017 will receive priority.
- Second priority will go to new faculty members, i.e., those who are emerging from graduate programs to take up their first teaching posts.
- Those who have never attended a seminar sponsored by Sunoikisis will receive third priority.
The 2017 courses will emphasize team-teaching. Whenever possible, two or more faculty will collaborate to design each week’s common session topic, reading assignments, and writing prompt. Throughout the planning seminars, faculty will be working with their common session partners to finalize their sections of the course syllabi.
The CHS will stream and record Sunoikisis course development seminars. In addition to completing the application form below, applicants should also complete the media release form.
